QE2 Paper Model
« on: Dec 05, 2020, 11:54 AM »
One interesting thing I have noticed is that there is no good paper model of the QE2 , the only paper model of the QE2 is made by Schreiber Bogen, but it's not good.

I have contacted a paper modeler who made beautiful papermodel of the Queen Mary 2 , but he has told me that they are interested in making one but their schedule will not allow them to make it before mid 2021.

I have designed a few papermodels in the past, but I don't think I can make one of the QE2, even though I would love to design one  :)

Fantastic detail on the paper model.  How difficult was it to put together and how long did it take to build?

I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank

Actually, the model in the picture was not built by me, but I am making my own. It will most probably take around 20 to 25 days, it is not that difficult, if the person building it has some experience building papermodels. The most difficult and time consuming task is cutting those small parts from the paper and then folding them into the shape, also the sheer no of parts may be a problem. The catamarans are probably the most difficult part, it is a good idea to wear glasses while making them as making the model without glases will cause a headache which I had. But nothing beats the joy when the model is finally finished  :)
It is also a great activity in times of lockdown.
